busy will always be for us, I think. and we realized earlier this year that unless we start DOing, all we will have to show for this season is busy. I still am in disbelief that this weekend with my best friend even happened and was as incredible as it was. I love you, matt. TTA. P.S. 10/10 recommend hiking to #ramonafalls. pinterest + insta do it no justice...I never knew green existed in real life like this. 💚🌲💚
twenty years. this is from our honeymoon on st. croix twenty freaking years ago. that's crazy. and really cool. we're headed out to portland this weekend (my first time in the PNW!) and I'm so stoked to celebrate twenty years with him! I'm talking about three things I've learned these past twenty years of marriage plus, 5th grade, kissing + hickies (sorry mom) on my blog today. how's that for #fridayintroductions 😂😘❤?! TTA, @mattdriesbach. ♡.
slowly learning to hustle for joy. I'm learning to hustle/work hard not just for work/life but also for fun moments too...for vacation moments, for pee-your-pants laughing moments, for windows down music up moments, for running through alleys racing for dutch moments. yep, hustling for joy needs to be a thing.
can it just be fall already? I can kinda sorta imagine with those trees just beyond k+j, but c'mon fall...get to chilling things off already. 😘🍃🍂🍁
graduating college? what, like it's hard? my niece is forever a stud in my eyes. love you, jos and loved hanging with you last night. ♡.
mental + visual escapes are so good for my soul. I just finished watching #theguernseyliteraryandpotatopeelpiesociety and was struck with two lines from it: she understood the power of words, connection...and community. and also, it's terrible to lose a friend when you don't have many. I'm thankful to have stood in this picture with two sweet friends taking in this cotton candy sunset listening to the waves softly come in. I'm thankful to have visual reminders of community... they're necessary when life seems overwhelming, no? and I'm thankful to have songs like from last night echoing in my head when I look at scenes like this...all my delight is in You. 🎶
🌵🌵🌵 stoked to be headed here again in october for mini sessions. allllll the cactus forests a golden sunlight. :) p.s. love + miss you, clo 💓
can we all be in agreement that if you're going to party into the evening on your wedding day, sparklers will forever be THE best way to be sent off into your happily ever after? mmkay, yes then we're in agreement. 🌟💫🎉💖! pssst, p.s. steven + jackie's first look from their wedding day this past weekend in california is up on the blog if you'd like to get a little click happy and see more! ♡!!!
remember when #followfriday was a major thing on social media? when we would all say out loud a few people that we admire on without the pressure of follow for a follow? gosh, that last part of the sentence seriously sounds lame. just... stupid lame. but yeah. I'm bringing it back. the two girls and one company I think you should be following this week are @insideoutbeautythatgoesdeeper and @danielle._.page...and the company they work for, @maskcara. they are encouragers. they are sisters who like each other and work in the same field. (always a win in my book.😘) they are funny... like sarcastic-random-life- i'm-fully-entertained-and-they-should-have-a-TV-show funny. and they're really smart and savvy about face/skin/hair and have the ability to dumb down their how-to knowledge so I can understand how to do that category better. I love and admire these girls. tremendously. and maskcara is a new-to-me company. I'm not usually ever a fan of mlm's mostly because most of the products (save for a few) aren't better than what you can buy in the store and have an unnecessary price tag attached to it. not this stuff. in all honesty yes, it's more expensive but (and a big but at that) you're getting straight up quality. ingredients you can pronounce...long lasting quality product...packaging that is freaking adorable and so spot on. I liken this makeup line to buying clothes from anthropologie. yes, you can get clothes from forever 21, but it's so not the thoughtful quality and experience like walking into an anthropologie store...site, smell, experience and quality. it's just better. I'm a fan. happy #followfriday. ♡.
it's the end of a full week and it's been a while since I've done a #fridayintroductions. so yeah, daaas me up there clearly loving what I do. ;) I honestly can't help the huge smile/enthusiasm sometimes (my husband likens me to a spaztastic puppy when I get like that) but honestly, I don't care. I'm legitimately happy on your wedding day. shouldn't everyone who is celebrating you be? it's a freaking celebration day! :) I know you're going to want to have as many moments as you can to look back on and remember and I take that into serious contemplation before I even begin. I'm your eyes for the day - your window-maker when you look back on this day. you best believe I'm going to have a huge smile on my face when I get to do that. I'm excited to get to do that and **smile big** 😘 for steven + jackie as I head out to california tomorrow! happy weekend to you all! :) 📷❤ as always to my yess: @lizweitz ♡!!!
